Your Diet For Menopause

Since calories can pack on easier during menopause and the risk factors for certain types of diseases can go up, a menopause diet is a good time to control the foods which aren't so good for you. Avoid taking fatty foods as much as possible will keep your heart and cardiovascular system healthy and also help to cut your risk of conditions such as diabetes and cancer. Besides it is also a good idea to cut back on your consumption of alcoholic drinks and caffeinated beverages.

To have a proper menopause diet, you should replace those choices with healthier options such as decaffeinated green tea and bottled water. Rather than frying your foods, go for the baking or broiling which will add less fat and keep the good stuff packed inside. You should also toss out the less nutritious choices such as potatoes and go for the sweet potatoes and yams which are packed with nutrients instead of empty calories if you want to relieve your menopause symptoms.

Fresh vegetables and fruits are always important to include in any diet particularly when you experience menopause. Furthermore you should try to stay away from sugary and fatty foods as well as those which contain caffeine or anything which has no nutritive value. However you should understand that there is no single food which includes all of these nutritive values, so you need to ensure that you are eating a nutritious and well balanced menopause diet regularly in order to relieve the menopause symptoms.

Thanks for the great resource. May I only add a few natural treatments I saw on the internet: natural progesterone cream, soy, vitamin E and herbs like black cohosh, dong quai and promensil seem to ease the menopause symptoms.
